Artist: Brioni

Song: In My Garden

Genre: Electronic/Pop

Label: Virgin UK/Spotify Ltd 

Brioni is an artist in every sense of the word. Hailing from London, her approach to music is unprecedented as she utilizes her chromesthesia, a type of synesthesia where sound involuntarily evokes the experience of seeing colors. Being an experienced music producer and painter, Brioni successfully intertwines both worlds in a way that is wholly original. How is this done you ask? Well, the colorful textures she perceives when hearing music are depicted by her in her paintings, and when she performs she performs solo on stage playing her paintings as an electronic drum all connected with a keyboard, controller, and laptop. It’s like her paintings have transcended the visual world and have developed it’s own auditory language. Her music is heavily Electronic with atmospheric sound textures and pulsating drum machines, and it’s all packaged in an infectious Pop style that is accessible yet artistic. Her new single “In My Garden” is no exception, and the theme behind the song is also unsurprisingly unique. After reading a book about the flowers language used to write secret messages, Brioni was inspired to use this in a song. With the two plants “Fox Gloves” which can translate to “lies,” and “Honesty” which translates to “honesty and realness,” she metaphorically guides us though her own garden which represents her life. She uses this to analyze herself. To walk her through her early insecurities and need to please people, only to realize that there was no need to be someone she’s not, and that alludes to the “Fox Glove” theme. As she comes to the realization that being her true self is a lot more liberating and that people will accept her for who she is, she plants her garden of honesty. The fact that she’s able to conceptualize something like that is truly remarkable, and that makes her an artist to keep your eye on. Brioni has also teamed up with an organization called “Treedom Trees.” 50% of her profit will go to them to help plant trees worldwide.
